Unfortunately, we are not emotionally responsible
I want to start off by saying: "I am against gun control!" I dislike the fact that we need to be controlled and ruled by the government BUT because we are a country and a world that is emotionally irresponsible we have no choice but to create more rules laws and controls to save the pure and innocent.
What a sad story we have created for ourselves the need to be constantly monitored because we lack the self-discipline, self-control, and our innate ability to care and share with others.
I ask you to look in the mirror and see if you are a responsible person who wants to do the right thing? It can mean that you are considerate towards others, you do not mock, insult or deliberately embarrass people because they may be different from you, speak differently, look different or live different. Tolerance and acceptance is part of the meaning behind the word responsible.
It is time for each one of us to step back - look around and see how we are living our lives, whether it is at work, at home or at play. Consideration, thoughtfulness, compassion, kindness and respect are just a few of the words that come to mind for me yet I find that too many people don't even think about their meaning.
Those individuals who are creating havoc in the world are hurting people. I can guarantee that they have cried out for help have expressed their pain in various forms but we have not taken the time to listen to them or even care.
I realize that in one way or another, most of us are hurting and in pain but having said that, most of us are able to handle it and find comfort. Others are not that fortunate. So I ask you today to STOP ignoring what is happening around you and STOP keeping a closed mind to what is
going in your community and begin to take notice of the world that is within your sphere of influence. There is something we all can do, even if it is small. start today to take responsibility for your small part of the world.
